Meet The Woman Whose 10-Day Cleanse Has Lizzo Falling Back In Love With Herself

JJ Smith is educating us all on the best ways to reset our bodies before committing to a healthier lifestyle.

Lizzo

Last week, mega star Lizzo, took to social media with high spirits and good news, as she disclosed to the world that she had just finished a detox cleanse. She says she was recently sidetracked from her newfound vegan lifestyle and began eating poorly on vacation in Mexico. She showed off her results, the before and after, and even detailed the journey. As you can imagine, she was ecstatic at her efforts to reset and get back on track with her initial diet.

The JJ Smith 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse

That detox was created by JJ Smith--a New York Times best-selling author, nutritionist and certified weight-loss expert whose passion is to educate people on living their best healthy lives.

The cleanse, her popular 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, which consists of readers drinking nothing but smoothies for 10 straight days, promises that you'll lose 10-15 pounds in the process. It comes complete with a full shopping list, recipes, and detailed instructions for the 10-day cleanse, along with suggestions for achieving best results. Additionally, it offers advice on how to continue to lose weight and maintain good health afterwards.

But make no mistake, Smith isn't new to any of this, she's been an inspiration and weight-loss guru since her days on the yard back at Hampton University. She's also not about fad dieting, but instead educating us all on the best ways to reset our bodies before committing to a healthier lifestyle.

Of the detox, Smith said:

"I created the '10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse' after learning how raw greens can heal the body. I was already an advocate of detoxing, so I knew I needed to rid my body of excess waste and toxins that had accumulated as a result of my bout with mercury poisoning that had left me bedridden for two months."

After developing the prototype, Smith created a Facebook group and asked 10 family members and friends to join her on her journey back to health. To her surprise, 100 people joined, beginning the cleanse immediately; thousands more in the weeks ahead.

Smith shared:

"Through the Facebook group, which grew to 10,000 people in the first few weeks, I realized there were thousands of other people who were craving a simple solution to cleanse their systems, lessen cravings for unhealthy foods and lose weight. This book was a labor of love written just for them."

Lizzo Has A Response To The Nasayers About Her 10-Day Smoothie Detox

And Lizzo accepts the dedication, as she has happily completed her 10 days, with zero regrets. She took to Instagram and said:

"I'm so proud of myself. I feel and look like a bad (expletive), and I think, like, that's it. I'm a big girl who did a smoothie detox, and I wanted to share that with you guys. I got exactly what I wanted out of it, and every big girl should do whatever the (expletive) they want with their bodies."

And listen, Smith is an advocate of allllll of that. And although she has yet to publicly acknowledge Lizzo's high-profile attention, as always, she maintains that her detox is safe, healthy, and good for the body.

Today, you can find Smith as a featured Nutritionist on The Dr. Oz Show, which she has been for three years. She also released her 7-Day Apple Cider Vinegar Cleanse, that promises to 'rid the body of unwanted fat and bacteria for renewed energy and lasting weight loss.'

As for her advice to anyone who wants to take on her 10-day cleanse?

"You know, some of the struggles you have are very real. I always tell people you have to be mentally prepared. Allow yourself to be uncomfortable for the first few days because there are rewards if you stick with it."

Whew, I'm trying, sis.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
